Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera
Found at the left side of the image browsing applications and a number of
controls and settings that will allow users to browse, play, preview, and
download imagery from either the Natural Color or the Enhanced Color collections.
Below is a brief guide to understanding those controls. Simply select one of the
topics to find out more.
At the top of the image information box is the filename for the image

Alternately, you can also click on the image in the main viewport to view

You can tap on the Switch Units logo at any time in order to toggle between
units in kilometers versus units in miles.
When available, the "Toggle Date" link allows you to switch back and forth between
the Enhanced Image collection and the Natural Color collection for a given date.
Video control buttons are available to enable you to play and pause
the video slideshow animation at any time.
For non-mobile devices, there is a "Hide" icon available which allows you to
show or hide the thumbnail listing of available slides on a given date.
Clicking on the date will display a pop-up calendar from which you can browse
and select alternate dates to display in the slideshow.
The black and silver animation of the earth depicts the precise global
placement of continents in the image that is currently displaying.
This allows users to be aware of the continental placement when cloud
coverage otherwise obscures them from view.
